The 1816 pattern bayonets supplied by Remington with their Maynard conversions of Model 1816 flintlock muskets starting in 1854 and those supplied by Hewes and Phillips on M1816s altered by them for New Jersey and the U.S. government from 1861 to 1863 are pretty much interchangeable. The overall length of this one, about 21 inches, would place it among the Hewes and Phillips deliveries, though Reilly admits they are so similar, and because H&P may have purchased parts from Remington, that Remington may have made them all. (See Reilly comments on B89 and B96.)

This bayonet uses the standard 1816 style socket with bridged T-shaped mortise and no locking ring, but has the dropped shoulders and fully fluted blade in the style of the 1835, 1855, etc. The blade bears a sharp U.S. at the base. The metal is smooth and shows a mix of muted silver and gray with some brown on the neck and socket.

Model 1816 bayonets have lots of interesting variations. This one is a nice example of the army trying to update older weapons to the percussion system and then the wartime pressure to get modern, or at least updated, arms in the hands of troops in the field.  [SR] [ph:m]
